Slow Cooker Korean Beef Short Ribs

I’ve got a tasty and simple new comfort food recipe for you—Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs! This turned out even better than I was expecting. With only a few ingredients to mix together, including only two that you actually have to cut with a knife, it could not have been any easier to make. I served it over brown rice ramen noodles with roasted carrots and other veggies on the side.

  1. Hi there! Is this a grass-fed option? Is it healthy like the other Real Food recipes you started out with, using humanely raised meat?

      Hi Darla, Lisa always recommends making sure the meat you purchase is organic, grass-fed, and humanely raised. – Nicole

  2. I have all of the ingredients to make this dish tomorrow. It was my first time purchasing sake. The bottle is quite large and it looks like we only need a third of a cup. I just googled it and it seems as though it needs to be finished within a few weeks of opening. Is that the case? Seems like I need to buy a new bottle every time I make this recipe?

    1. Haven’t tried with this particular recipe, like we do with our whole chicken, but it might work just as well. – Nicole
